An experimental study of the packing of binary mixtures of coarse spheres with the addition of water has been conducted. The results indicate a similarity between dry and wet packings, either in the relationship between the packing density and the moisture content or in the relationship between the packing density and the particle-size distribution. The Westman equation is used to describe the wet packing after necessary modification. The approach is verified by the good agreement between the calculated and measured packing densities.
